And of course a winner of the PBP race received the Paris-Harrogate survivors. 'Oppy', not to be confused with 'Hoppo'.

I talked a couple of folk into driving 3500km and riding a 450+km Fleche (my second ever brevet) with me to meet him. Oppy normally handed out the medals at the finish but his wife was ill that weekend in 1993 and so we never got to meet him. A great regret.
